The saga of Spider-Man has now been chronicled by various outlets. Its history as a Broadway musical, we now know dates back nearly a decade, with its juiciest history beginning at least two years ago when the production team began renting what is now known as the Foxwoods Theatre. (I'd love to be that owner- a constant stream of rent money for years and only a little over 100 performances to show for it, not to mention millions in permanent structural upgrades which will outlive this and many more shows.) And now, with this past week's definitive set of major decisions - firings, rearranging the power structure, hirings, rearranging the show itself - it seems the media has concluded that we are now at an intermission of sorts in this Broadway-sized theatre drama.
Who knows how Act Two will play out? Who will the players be when the dust settles? What will the show end up like - a Broadway musical or Universal Studios stunt show? How much of the original "vision" will remain intact? Will the show get the ultimate revenge and win Best Musical of 2012? Or will it simply die and become fodder for many a book? We shall see. My Spidey-sense is tired and needs this intermission, but it is still all a-tingle in anticipation!
